Rose Elliott - I have begun concentrating on framing my fabric paintings. These are created in disperse dyes, using just the three primary colours plus black. I use these to paint onto watercolour paper after having created an initial detailed drawing. The paintings are then sublimated onto fabric using heat and pressure. I often add a three-dimensional detail - maybe the fin of a fish, a flower petal or a trail of seaweed - created separately and sewn onto the painting.
